Operator

coming next Group, proceed with question. Palm please Thank Capital Craig-Hallum Greg with is you. The your from question

Greg Palm

for the as Yeah. Good my questions and well. will morning and thanks taking add I congratulations

Mark Yost

morning. good Greg, Thanks,

Greg Palm

Maybe about year-to-date? to start, seeing terms rates order in can you of what you're talk

Mark Yost

Order overall, to I have a lot there's rates year-to-date. been order expect backlogs flat. quarter January, are say of but so normally would -- would Yeah. I during volatility Obviously, rates in it's the be relatively good

So still rates are good. order very

Greg Palm

Got it.

customers types out mentioned out of of that that help a you'd from maybe flush you share of types those new can expect think the environment type comments meaningful is may [Indiscernible]. where the bit terms seeing of be In take there, Maybe this more? the to customers, I you you

Mark Yost

Sure, Yeah. Greg.

high on there's think mainly a is pressures driven factors across and inflationary the few side here. seeing I the labor we're material board, One the side.

builders use versus labor our So We competitiveness per if site competitors, substantially site-built use do. than you we most material think our than less of substantially home deal. site less builders

so effective, the as we and cost inflationary become gets result, a position our times, in curve So much on cost more better. much

is amount can able of come in inflationary. CapEx minimal look we key on inflation. offset you driver model, So very just prices Plus, investments, pass that inflationary grow raise topline we're really We with our efficiencies to business tremendous that's our revenue and general when our one times. generate to shine at cash, we can to

I of those dynamics business good. So think very are our model

then think think site built expectations $XXX,XXX I afford home I recent per fourth cannot per on just and interest up even average. the with favorably coming new with median increases. rate assume, if in higher interest home price the rate interest were quarter compounded on out rates price for $XX,XXX customer Because the increases, interest most average calendar X.X%, And that's if stats by increases. less you - with builders look you rate site the the go

be builders really an form, successful. be forced different that to plays alternative going to they're fact find to and are that going a alternative, model incentivize to switch a to us, find really into and So to different offsite to into or start the plays

Greg Palm

helpful. see the gross supply make that assumptions likely see throughout fiscal periods capacity of If that ramping at elevated sort to think thinking to those some at and to as relative gross modest for and lift That's we even go-forward you current think volumes won't margin issues Last to demand you're a not of absenteeism there quarter? volumes in any XX, chain and reason of gross sense. Is Makes margin. least you're going Hopefully, we some that to COVID increased the not impact what levels, same are margin. least the standard one, about the around up. back levels in circling

Laurie Hough

come production But some output. sales of of our majority products cost we Yeah, offering through to deficiencies our increased as continue there the is be and simplify Greg, variable. that will

see as efficiencies. some and So we on focus we'll product continue improvement to the simplification initiative

Greg Palm

Okay. second question. Thanks. My

you are capacity you've geographically to positioned just think the widespread you're you there I way on of Just the and seen but growth, the demand, adjustments demand backlog obviously, overarching evolve? availability when labor. constraints, inclusive light whether growth what you're bringing of of today, you demand to right your the in backlog, most think think your have seeing of the that, or material where and terms can you trends most talk are capacity you that relative further if only think where capacity about about is in get about obviously, that needed the the supply

Mark Yost

Yeah, Mike.

question. two there's of that parts think I

out we're there. think demand I well geographically trends is, positioned for the first that The are

Texas. look you those been have amount states those through our been people Georgia, migratory where a There's migration U.S. relocated the and we've tremendous factors If Carolina, I think Florida, in presence in growing regions. of to to, of the

capacity, I capacity think bought those opened advance advantage to up So in in of regions take we've that.

for day, the we I are As say positioned are need that number with that every but, turning -- I probably the we're on I today orders we mention need we I more far the many demand, think today, entire geographies same as capacity and away those would well were throughout of it's capacity definitely orders we so would in it's passing would Then throughout. say that country. more rejecting

Canada regions a say additional It as out could there's regions, there, U.S. generally and be of little but There's are robust in seasonal would housing speaking in that I Texas capacity demand Eastern Oregon Some the soft. that one as the some tremendous due a capacity. on northern not of or that's good. would take is be draw to and Plains very Great softer are there the two climates. but demand you There's geographies other U.S fantastic there. there of through line weather few regions,

This we've think so homebuilders turned robust past away So to backlogs, I more rate demand, calendar margin. our demand. by mean than a our outpaced And large of it's I every year. pretty order growth orders

Mark Yost

few it's think factors there's holding the I a one, Collin, last that's where been that so, X-XXX traditional think mortgages, points right now I basis to are quarter. spreads

So around spread. a rates bump to XX-year, move there, I it's think the you'll see as mortgage so that spread constant

pockets, don't likely move -- see interest outpaced as completions some I this pressures starts pockets be Single-family much housing happen there so much calendar and the will as rates so home-building as have think, I As year. world, housing that in far later I process think in or to have a because XXX and starts housing market work supply completions. caught catch-up improves that between to you come be of as going kind given a there's let's they're where that take homes XX,XXX to say chain

Collin Verron

you on improving the for term to you've you then those of over those about give several on longer-term in production over Can process a you and Okay. you maybe us That's helpful get able past quarterly I long rates, rates, where the talk annual and quarters your quarters. couple color. of just are, basis? goalpost just production the or increase next some if And been of in can terms guess,

Mark Yost

appropriate supply depends seven at chain look that now, Right we will tell supply Collin improves so and it got the to I as continue. giving time we're and but we've on would really restart dynamics guidance, you idle plants Yes, chain. market not bring on

be and would those are less our Obviously, production. operating plants enhanced think current shortages I off. than of resequencing plants of material efficiently existing because we So as start

I would in chain be improves. supply volatile be but will the So late chain calendar towards year, in the some year the volatile obviously, this West it throughout that -- supply But enhancements in as by production do there will it and foresee recover calendar be might the short-term.
